The Browns and Giants took the field, but lighening strikes resulted in a one-hour delay of the game. A strong showing by the team's backups in the second half enabled the Browns to pull out a 17-14 win in Romeo Crennel's first game as Browns head coach... stay tuned for more from Bernie's Insiders!!!


Quick Hits...

Inactive: CB Daylon McCutcheon (headache) was the only player listed as inactive for the Browns. Michael Lehan started at left cornerback in his place. For the Giants: S Jack Brewer, RB Derrick Ward, CB Antwain Spann, LB Joseph Scott, LB Barrett Green, LB Nick Greisen, LB T.J. Hollowell, OL Wayne Lucier, OL Greg Walker, WR Jamaar Taylor, WR/DB Mark Jones and DE Eric Moore.

Bad Omen: It wasn’t a good start as No. 2 draft choice DB Brodney Pool went down on the opening kickoff. He lay on the ground for several minutes before walking off the field with the aid of trainers. The official word is that he suffered a concussion and was questionable to return. The former Oklahoma star was just starting to work his way into the starting rotation at the safety position.

Delay: At 8:09 p.m. the game was temporarily suspended due to lightning on the field. The Giants had run just six plays before the game was stopped. The NFL instituted a new rule this season concerning lightning and it was brought about in the first few moments of the game.
